As Grace Bonney already mentioned, Mamma Mia is not just a fun musical, it’s a visual feast. Call me crazy, but the styling seemed to have a very Swedish flair. The primitive space paired with all the turquoise and gorgeous textiles spoke straight to me. I love a good musical even if Pierce Brosnan is a little hard to believe whilst singing (the whole theater instinctively burst into laughter when he broke out into song the first time:)!
Every time he broke out into song, I burst out laughing. Not just the first time! But oh, Colin Firth was perfect in his role.
I want to see this so bad…now I want to see it more and not for Mr. Brosnan’s memorable performance!
I LOVE the photo you have here–one of my favorite pieces in the movie was Meryl taking care of her girl…I wanted her to take care of me!
I’m so glad I wasn’t the only one who thought Pierce couldn’t sing. Now I’m dying to go to Greece!
I also felt that it had a distinctive Swedish feel. It was beautiful, and watching Pierce Brosnan was like watching star search.
i couldn’t agree more – he reminded me of a frog. it must have been the hardest role of his life. colin firth had a lovely voice. i want to go to that house in greece, too.
haha, sounds so funny about brosnan!
Of course it looked and felt Swedish … ABBA? 🙂
